I would not take my dog back to them ever again. Used them in an emergency because it was late and my vet was closed. They did not find the break in my dogs leg and ended up costing me 3K because their error required major surgery to repair when my vet found it. My moms dog had a mild stroke, missed that even after all the blood work, They recommended putting the dog down. She pulled through and lived a happy 12 years longer. Now my daughter is having her dog put down because they could not figure out her dogs problem and is now beyond saving. 3 strikes met vet. go back to school and learn how to be real veterinariens
its the compasion that counts.
I had an emergency with my guinea pig..
saturday.. Northview animal hospital refused to see my guinea pig cause they had no doctors till tuesday..and that was the hospital i always took my pets to.
I called around and i called around, finally met vet south said yeah you can come in :)
They really took good care of her, and Dr. Wu is a real young compasionate doctor that really did do everything she could today for my guinea pig.
Very Nice Staff. My 17 year old cat was very sick and had to be put to sleep. The staff was very good in handling the situation. They knew what I was going through and I thank them for taking care of me and my long time friend. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.
Best vet around nice people. My 4 year old cat, had been acting funny for days ( not eating right, or at all, sleeping alot more, very weak) I called the vet we have taken animals to in the past ( Valley vet in belle vernon) by the way, dont take your animals there, very heartless people. Anyway they didnt seem to care just told me to change her food. I called Met Vet south and before i even finished saying was wrong, they told me i could bring her in that afternoon to get looked at. As soon as I walked in i was comfortable, the girls behind the desk were friendly and talkative while I was waiting to get my cat seen by the doctor. The doctor went over the options I could get done, x-rays and other tests work and it was all my choice, even gave me the total price for all the work, before it was done. I went with the tests done first, which came back normal and probably just a UTI. They never once pressured me into getting anything else done. Very kind with my cat, and just very nice people. It almost an hour drive for me to get there, but I will from now on take all my pets there.
Horrid experience...More than once!. I have a dozen dogs, literally. I foster, rescue, I do placement and I used to breed, not often and I NEVER will.. The first horrid experince I had was with Dr Brown. I had taken my tiny Maltese there because she was in labor,water broke and nothing was happening. I went to met vet south as an emergency to be seen by Dr Brown. She told me there was 1 pup and she couldnt understand why she couldnt pass the pup because from the x-ray showed the pups skull to be tiny enough for her to pass. She said she's going to need a c-section but she had another emergency coming in so I would have to travel to Robinson and have Dr Hough perform the surgery. I said the pup will die on the way, especially on a fri at 5pm I knew I would be stuck in traffic. She said the pup is probably already dead so it doesnt matter. Well not only did I sit in traffic with my dog bleeding profusely, I almost lost the mom. Dr Hough did the surgery after sitting in traffic for over an hour, the puppy had a heartbeat but not for long, he died... Most recent experience is utterly disgusting and heart wrenching. I took an 8 week old pup with an upset stomach, otherwise completely healthy. They told me to admit him so he wouldnt dehydrate so I did... After 2,000 dollars worth of testing they concluded it was a viral infection but continued blooddraws out of his jugular vein every 4 hours, 6 x's a day for6 days so they could make 200 dollars every time they did it... After 4 days in the hospital I told Dr Sisc to stop the blooddraws in his neck, for he was severely bruised. He said they had to and that they had to continue this on the same jugular and not bounce to the other, he said they had to save the other in case of an emergency. Keep in mind this pup weighed 1 1/2 lbs. This pup NEVER had a fever, diahrea, just an upset belly with his electrolytes off caused from the viral infection. Well, the 5th day this pup was doing fine until the last draw. He died on the last draw!! Most of the techs are professional but they lie thru their teeth and some aren't even certified. Said they disinfected a scale after a parvo puppy was on it but yet there were hairs all over it, I asked them to disinfect it and they did..He had urine on him all the time ,his i v was never changed in 6 days... I have known Dr hough for a long time and have taken many of pets there.. He used to put the pet first, not any more. I have paid over 3,000 dollars only to walk out the door with my dead pup... I am heartbroken and sick, literally
good place. Both of our dogs have been cared for by Met Vet and staff. We have always had what I consider excellent care, and I'm an nurse. When our first dog was diagnosed with cancer they were great. They helped us care for him for his last months and made him as comfortable as he could be until it was time to put him down. We didn't spend hundreds of dollars but we did what we felt was needed and we were never made to feel guilty.
worst veterinary hospital in pittsburgh. took 2 of my dogs there, neither one every actually had an exam, dr caroline brown was in such a hurry. She seemed like she really had somewhere to go that day, rather than take care of her patients. My other dog was spayed by dr michele pietrzak. what a chop job she did. the wound looked horrible, bleeding everywhere. she was nowhere to be found after the surgery either. I asked to speak with her and the front desk told me she went home. you cant leave your patients there while you go home!! thats bad practice! i also saw dr william hough once or twice, what a quack he is. so full of himself, and absolutely no bedside manner. If it wasnt for the one guy technician they had working there i'd have never gone back.. The management staff there is of no help. I had called to talk to a manager about my issues and Amanda was supposed to get back to me, NEVER got a call!! its been 2 months!!! I gave up calling after the 10th time. what a waste of a good hospital. Never used to be that way
Saved a life. Five years ago, I took my seven week old puppy to Met Vet South because of seizures. I had only gotten my lab puppy two days before. We found out her seizures were caused by a servere case of worms--every kind possible. The doctor told us he would do his best, but her prospects looked grimm. Five years, later I have a healthy happy dog. I live 1 hour 15 minutes from the vet, but I still her back for her yearly appointments.
These people are crazy.
I had two dog's I took there and two cat's.
One dog was 18 year's old,
He was deaf could hardly see, he could not lay or sit down,
when I took him to Met Vet for them to put him down,
they made me feel guilty and started running all this test $300.00 dollars later they told me he needs to be put down so on top of the $300.00 now it cost me another $200.00 to have him put down and cremated.
My other dog I took there to have her leg fixed that cost me $1700.000.
My male cat kept getting crystal?s in his bladder, again they put the guilt trip on me, they tested him for feline aids, leukemia, $300.00 and at the end wanted to turn my male cat in to a female for $900.00.
A another cat I took there $300.00 later they had to put her down.
To me these people see Big Dollar signs the minute you walk in the door with an animal.
The only reason I took all my pets there is because they seemed to get sick when all other vets near me where closed.
not good with my ferret. I don't know how they are with cats and dogs, but I know they aren't good with small animals. I had a ferret that started to loose weight. (she wasn't eating) So after $500 worth of tests, the doctor tells me that she has a vitamin deficiency. Of course she does, she hasn't been eating! He also tested her for adrenal disease, which is a very common disease in ferrets, even though she showed none of the major symptoms of it. (she had no hair loss, no swollen belly, no red spots, no itchiness, no aggressive behavior, no excessive water consumption, etc, etc.)
